“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
– Bob Marley

Music is all around us, Inside you and me.
The world thrives on music, Like the air we breathe.
In every single breath you take, Feel the music within.
Because life without music, Is painful indeed!

With its rhythmic beats and mystical composition, good music can invade your body, mind and soul. While all genres of music are good, only specific genres continue to be our favorites. At a time, when music evolves and the number of bands grow, it has become increasingly necessary to educate the masses on good quality music. This is when, music reviewers come to our rescue. They help you explore songs beyond your interests, and let you know what’s worth adding to your music list.

The best thing about being a music reviewer is that you don’t need any pre-requisite qualifications. All you need is some knowledge of music, an ability to segregate music and express your feelings in words. Bono said, “Music can change the world because it can change people.” In the same way, your writing can influence people’s perspective on the world of music.

Below are a few tips to help you get started, with writing a music review.

Things to Cover:
Start with the introduction of the song. Talk about the intro music – its length and tempo. The tune of the song, the instruments used to create it, the emotional quotient of the song, the melody, and the rhythm should also be included. Don’t forget to talk about the voice of the singers and make a special mention on lyrics, if it creates the right impact.

Other imageTips For Writing:

  • Keep it short, yet entertaining. 300 words is all you’ve got to impress your readers.
  • Be creative and humorous. That works!
  • Don’t imitate, but get inspired.
  • Write as a third person.
  • Avoid jargon.
  • Compare artists only if and when required.
  • Use effective words to describe the song.
  • Express your opinion.
  • Reviews are best, when they are unbiased.

Last but not the least, write from your heart and feel your words, just like the music that you hear. In this way, you can do justice to your review. Remember, nobody is born a professional and no one is perfect either. So, listen to new music, experiment with styles, sharpen your skills, read about music and the reviews of other writers. When you want to say something, just come out and say it, whether its about music or anything else. Because, music exists in every word that you speak.
